The Jamaican musician Tenza who is currently in the country for musical shows, proceeds of which funds she raise are meant for community development. She is accompanied to the Gambia by her manager Killah Riches. the Jaimacan star was talking to a group of journalists at Brikama recently where she indicated that being a musician one dose not have to show off by driving a nice car. One rather needs have your priorities right and set a good foundation. She warn that one cannot build a house if there is no foundation, otherwise it will fall apart as simple as that. Because you will go hungry and you will not eat the tires of your car.
When asked How far she was on her Album; she replied that her album was ready since she arrived here. She said among the reggae female artists she is the top 10; also number one in the UK female dancers. She said she did well and did not just reach to such a position but rather worked hard for it. She use the opportunity to announce that her new Album called JAMESAN is coming up soon which Album is a mixed one. When asked how many tracks is in that Album, Tenza said 16 tracks including I remixed.
Tenza did release a video called ghetto soldier; she said Ghetto soldier is what she saw when she was growing up in Jamaica. It explains to the youth that she is apolitical, but when you see a politician comes your area and say oh! am going to buy you a house, you need to vote for me am going to give you a land and this and that. Ask them to leave or tell them to educate you, and build you schools with education you can build it for yourself; when their party falls out you are out of it. When they give you gun, it might not happen but it happen in Jamaica to kill someone burst their heads and not thousands of others. So that they understand what happen with such missions. Am not promoting violence but a way of stopping it; ask them to give you books and pens and not guns. So is a way of cursing politics and I called it poli-tricks.
Asked if TENZA is in any relations, or married? She responded Oh God am married, no am not married a single got a very long time, 13 of February it will be 5 years. I can’t understand are you saying you don’t have a boyfriend or you are not into any serious relationship.
I can associate myself with men, I can’t do what you called dating; if I have to it has to develop into something. The problem is my mental strength is too much for most men, when I am on stage to perform they cannot accumulate it, when I travel they will not they cannot deal with it, and I cannot sit home is not part me; so the man that I need is one mentally strong and not one strong in body. Jealousy! Everybody can be jealous its nature but don’t be stupid with it where you stop a woman from progressing. You need to trust and understand your woman.
